I just noticed the announcement about this speed change, and it was not automatically updated for me (25/7 account) as of Sept. 17, 2012. I use my Cellpipe modem in bridge mode (no pppoe credentials are entered in the modem). I had to reboot the modem to get the speed upgrade.

Thanks!

Mathieu

I'm still at 25/7 in Ajax and have rebooted my Cellpipe modem a few times now.

Is the reboot required or does it get pushed out?

Is that still an $8 wallet-bite ?

It sucks but that's the tax if you want to go with DSL.

Request in the direct forum. They have the power. Confirmed.

I noticed Bell has been working on the JWI box on my street for the past week or so. Will that effect the TekSavvy services?
Usually I have been seeing the Bell van's out in that area and today it was a truck.

Spoke with TekSavvy support tonight (after 30mins on hold). They say all the 25/7 to 25/10 flips should be done by Sept 27 in Ajax.

Oops. Sorry that was a typo. I meant will it effect the services, like possible upgrades to the phone line on my street? More TSI services for me to get?

I wonder how long it will be before some wholesaler starts taking advantage of the fact that all DSL tiers are now priced the same and start decoupling internet connection speeds from sync speeds. An ISP could sell symmetrical speeds, for example, like 5/5 or 10/10. Since the primary cost differentiator is now usage patterns (for both transit and UBB charges), a 10/10 service would indeed have substantially different costs than 25/10, even when provided on the same wholesale VDSL2 tier.

Are you asking if you'll get fibe 25?

I would be happy with this one. If it will come to me in the near future.

Yeah could be that they are doing some upgrades.

that might be why the TSI site isn't listing any services for my road even though I know that I can get DSL 6.

Hey I was hoping someone in the forums can explain to me the differences between Vdsl estimated loop length, Near end loop length and far end loop length. can anyone chime in on whether my line stats will be able to handle the upgrade or not.

ali gil, how do you get your line information with the Cellpipe? When I go to the VDSL tab, I just see the 1st 2 lines of your screenshot...

Do a search for Cellpipe Modem stats there is a greasemonkey script that a fellow made for firefox that will pop that page up automagically once u install it

Hey,

can you go to this site please ....

»www.thinkbroadband.com/download.html

and download 200MB or 512MB file and post your speedtest results, because I seem to be having a problem. For my neighbour it works just fine.

yea my profile syncs at 17984/888 and these are the speeds and download speeds I've been getting since 13th SEPT 2012, more or less, ever since I was problem free .....

The people posting low pings are on VDSL2, which has substantially lower inherent latency than ADSL2+, which you're on (or rather your speedtests are consistent with a 15/1 connection). There are a whole bunch of reasons for this; higher downstream and especially upstream, no more ATM causing tons of overhead (and for tiny packets like ICMP to get multiplied by not quite fitting into packets), probably higher priority from Bell, a negligible amount of interleaving relative to speed, etc.

Me either. I even tried putting in a request for it via the Direct Forum, and was denied because (quoting) "WHDSL 25M/1-7M/CUSTOMER IS ON THE HIGHEST PROFILE POSSIBLE.FULL SYNC." Of course, it says right in there that they are only doing the upload profile from 1-7M, so being on 7M, of course I'm on the highest sync, the whole point was they are supposed to be doing upgrades to 10M.

I got my upload speed bump to 10Mb/s (from 7Mb/s) sometime in the last 24 hours. This was after putting in a request on Thursday.
